The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts is gearing up for the 4th annual ARToberfest and invites local artists to participate. The festival observes National Arts & Humanities Month, celebrates the talent of local and regional artists, and highlights the arts’ remarkable impact on community life. ARToberfest will take place on Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Turner Center Art Park located at 605 N. Patterson St.

This event hosts dozens of local artists as vendors, giving them the space to display and sell their fine art. The festival is becoming an event staple for the Valdosta community and is the perfect opportunity for artists to share their work and flex their merchant muscles.

Interested artists should register for a membership with RAC (Regional Artist Community) for $75, which includes the booth for ARToberfest as well as the opportunity to sell in the Turner Center gift shop and participation in the annual RAC Gallery Exhibit. There is more fun to be had at the Turner Center this fall! Keep an eye on social media to stay up to date on what’s going on.
